Some pretty good milestones today. Sarah got to drink water, then juice after the water went down ok. She spent the majority of the day with her eyes wide open, and interacting with everyone. Not only did she take her first steps since moving up to the deluxe spa room, she walked the length of the ICU desk and back. Overachiever.
Tomorrow, she may be moved to respiratory ICU, which is more geared toward maintaing status quo on the rest of her body while she is in here waiting. The weekday team and her CF nurse angel Vicki will be in, and I would guess we'll see the development of a game plan for the waiting game
Every nurse shift comments about how small her current room is, so perhaps she'll get the double superdeluxe spa room next. As a modification of Grandma Siebenaler's quote about being happy with the tiniest amount of space in heaven, we're just pleased she is still occupying the little room in Mary Brigh.
We are not out of the woods by a longshot, but let's call it a clearing where we can get our bearings, and one can see the sun peeking through. And for now, she is asleep.
